Two recipes and two friends!

So my friend Kathryn and her son Easton (who just happens to be Landon's best bud) came over this morning. Kathryn is a fellow blogger who actually got me started so we have been coming up with things and trying recipes off other blogs we have seen.
So today we tried 2 recipes of the Love from Texas blog we like so much!
Breakfast Cupcakes and homemade Strawberry Applesauce!

Breakfast Cupcakes
10 eggs
Salt and pepper
1 pounds of sausage (browned and drain the grease)
1 bag of shredded cheese (usually 1 bag equals 2 cups)
1/3 tsp. of dry mustard
Flakey biscuits (Grand's or Great Value brand)

Beat your 10 eggs, add salt, pepper, and dry mustard
Once mixed add your cheese and sausage crumbles
Peel apart your biscuits, this should make 3 small circles to fill your muffin pan with. (Make sure you spray your muffin pan VERY well because mine still would not come out very easily!)
Once you have added your biscuits, spoon your egg mixture into each hole. (I didn't fill them all the way up because the eggs and cheese will rise out and could make a mess!)
They turned out great! I think if i was going to make them for an event or bridal brunch or something I would probably use a cupcake cover or something to make sure they didn't stick to the muffin pan. Other than that they were a hit!
Strawberry Applesauce
3 pounds bag of apples (I used red delicious. Also my grocer was out of 3 pound bag so I had to get a 5 pound and save some)
1 bag of frozen strawberries (The recipe I used called for 2 cartons but I wants to use the frozen)
1/3 cup of brown sugar
Core and peel your apples (I used an apple corer which also cut the apples for me so I saved a step!
I borrowed my mom's dutch over pot and it worked like a charm! Add your strawberries
The recipe says to puree with a food processor but my nice new blender has a puree option so we used that! Worked great!
I got these jars from my local Wal-Mart. They are especially for the freezer. So whenever we make more (and I'm SURE we will) we can keep on and freeze one!
